favorite...

this is one of my favorite plants...


put in a vintage basket with a vintage dollie...


it is a succulant called Kalanchoe, and they are at Lowes and even grocery stores...


they come in several colors, but of course pink is my favorite...


now I have had the BEST luck with these, I put them in  containers on the patio.  They love shade, and not much water, I really just can't kill them!!!


so if you have ever thought of getting one but was a little afraid, don't they really are the best!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  9. You can't kill kalanchoe huh? Well, I'm willing to give them a go! I am so bad at growing things but now that I have my own little cottage, I am so flower crazy right now that I want to plant everything I see at Lowe's and Home Depot!

    I love your sweet doilies!

    Happy Pink Saturday

  10. I just wrote the name of the flowers down. Don't know what state you are in, but shady and not a lot of water is perfect for me. Yup, I live in Florida but have these two huge Oak trees I dearly love but.....they give way too much shade. These are beautiful and would wonderful. Going to check Lowes tomorrow after my grandsons ball game. How lovely the vintage doilies look in your pot. Charming idea! Blessings. I am also your newest follower.

  13. Hi Stefanie, I need a pretty plant like that. Our mild winter has caused most of my outdoor plants to bite the dust. :/ I will be heading to the plant souk soon for some hardy replacements. That lavender in your previous post is gorgeous! Hope you are having a great weekend. Tammy

  18. Thank you so much for getting back to me. Too bad I do not live close to you, I could take cuttings and start my own, and more for you too.
